What to expect

The best way to discover Amsterdam and its highlights is from the water. During your Amsterdam canal cruise in a special semi-open boat, you'll explore the city's 17th-century Canal Ring surrounding the city's Old Center.

During your cruise, you'll sail through the city's historic UNESCO-protected canal district and hidden corners on a small boat that can access places not usually reachable by the larger canal cruise boats. As you sail along the canals, you'll see many of the city's top sights, attractions and landmarks. You'll cruise down the wide channels of the Amstel River as well as some of the narrow canals of the infamous Red Light District of De Wallen.
